MNTB Greatest Lyrics – Tears in Heaven

Written by Eric Clapton (help from Will Jennings), he wrote the song after his four-year old fell out of a 53rd floor window of a New York apartment building. It came out in January 1992 for the soundtrack of ‘Rush’. Apparently Clapton stopped playing it in 2004 saying he didn’t feel the loss anymore which was so much a part of that song.

Would you know my name
If I saw you in heaven
Will it be the same
If I saw you in heaven
I must be strong, and carry on
Cause I know I don’t belong
Here in heaven

Would you hold my hand
If I saw you in heaven
Would you help me stand
If I saw you in heaven
I’ll find my way, through night and day
Cause I know I just can’t stay
Here in heaven

Time can bring you down
Time can bend your knee
Time can break your heart
Have you begging please
Begging please

(instrumental)

Beyond the door
There’s peace I’m sure.
And I know there’ll be no more…
Tears in heaven

Would you know my name
If I saw you in heaven
Will it be the same
If I saw you in heaven
I must be strong, and carry on
Cause I know I don’t belong
Here in heaven

Cause I know I don’t belong
Here in heaven
